Premium Sale Information

It is required that youth wishing to sell animals in the Premium Sale at the fair next summer complete at least three educational events or livestock activities between August 1, 2018 and weigh-in at the fair.  The events should pertain to the 4 species that are eligible for the premium sale.

This may include

  • Rolling Prairie livestock meetings or shows
  • Out of district spring shows
  • Livestock judging contests
  • YQCA program online or face-to-face
  • Present a market livestock presentation at Club Days
  • Participate in a livestock educational tour or event
  • Write a story about you livestock project
  • Do a Financial Analysis of your livestock project with a loan officer at a lending institution.

If you are not sure if an event will count ask Jenny prior to attending to get verification. Also, it is your responsibility to notify the office what events you attended and/or participated in order to receive credit for them. Local club events or project meetings are not the only activities that were meant to count toward the requirement. We want you to attend both in and out of district events for the requirements.

  • Steers—1,050 pounds
  • Pigs—210 pounds
  • Lambs—90 pounds
  • Goats—50 pounds
